Storytelling is essential-whether you're trying to get a promotion, a new job, or simply make a lasting connection. It is a proven fact that everyone loves a story. Personal anecdotes bring people together and strengthen ties with your listeners.
Keep these six secrets of good storytelling in mind.
Example: Suppose you’re in a job interview and the recruiter says, “Tell me about a problem you solved.” You get excited and go on about every facet of the problem you solved. Five minutes later you’re still speaking—but now you’ve lost your audience (and job).
Example: "And so, what I learned, and what I'd like to see you do, is to lead no matter what your position in the company."
Build your story chronologically: with a past, present, and future:
Past: "I've always loved people, and that's why I'm passionate about this job in HR. I was outgoing and extrovertish even when young."
Present: "In my last two HR positions, I have developed programs that make employees feel safe and engaged. One program I am particularly proud of is our Mental Health offering."
Future: "This job is my dream job, and as an HR professional I know I would be a great fit for this role."

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
